“I asked why the prop­erty could not just be re­turned to the school board,” Judge Porter wrote of the shed and trailer, “but ap­par­ently that is not an avail­able op­tion due to on­go­ing is­sues be­tween the school board and (the busi­ness owner).”

Ne­whook was or­dered to pay resti­tu­tion in the amount of $3,839, and the amount must be paid by Aug. 1, 2019.

He will also serve a oneyear pro­ba­tion pe­riod and pay a vic­tim sur­charge of $400.

In con­clu­sion Judge Porter wrote, “The ac­cused was con­victed of fraud by dis­hon­est de­pri­va­tion of the shed and trailer. That, and hav­ing the em­ploy­ees of the school board de­pot per­form work on Walsh’s pickup truck, also re­sulted in a con­vic­tion for breach of trust. The ac­cused was ter­mi­nated from the po­si­tion, and or­dered to pay an agreed amount in resti­tu­tion.”
